Review

Praise for Wish You Were Here

“Readers will enjoy meeting Charlotte’s family, be charmed by Charlotte and Helen’s friendship, and will be eager to uncover just what’s going on between Charlotte and the mysterious Adam—all while swooning over the sexy parts.”  (Booklist)

“With a surprising cast of lovable and relatable characters, witty banter, and some utterly romantic scenes, Renee Carlino's Wish You Were Here is about more than just finding love—it's about rediscovering what love is. Just remember to have tissues on hand.” (New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle )

"If you loved Before We Were Strangers and Swear on This Life, then Carlino's latest, Wish You Were Here, will be a no-brainer addition to your to-be-read list as she's outdone herself. Wish You Were Here will have readers laughing, crying, crying some more and basically running a gamut of emotions in this beautiful, heart-wrenching story. The relatable heroine finds herself not only at a crossroads in her life, but torn between two great guys. Furthermore, this is a memorable story where readers will fall in love with both men. It would not be surprising if readers picked Wish You Were Here as one of their top reads this year." (Romantic Times (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick))
